No sector is closer than healthcare to the front-lines of the covid-19 pandemic.
Not only is the pandemic shaking up businesses in the sector, it is creating opportunities for dealmaking. Indeed, Thermo Fisher’s [NYSE:TMO] proposed takeover of diagnostics firm Qiagen [NYSE:QGEN] shows how the crisis can make the case for M&A.
In this week’s podcast, Mergermarket healthcare editor Mintoi Chessa-Florea, Mergermarket healthcare reporter Davide Salvi and Dealreporter analyst William Cain join us to discuss the sector. At issue are: pre-covid-19 M&A trends, the effect of the pandemic on business cases, the effect of the pandemic on M&A and ECM, and the outlook for Qiagen/Thermo Fisher.
